I just came back from a nice family camping trip to Wasaga Beach ! No internet, TV or even stamping!!! We had a great relaxing time! Now, to stay on the “beach” theme, I would like to share with you this card I made for my dad’s birthday. I used the beautiful stamp set “Wetlands“, combined with the “Faux Tear” technique.
To achieve a “faux tear” look, you need a piece of scrap paper that you tear and use as a mask to sponge this “rough edge”.
Here’s a great tip: Use the 2-Way glue pen to make your own “sticky note”. If you put some glue on the torn edge and let it dry first, it will still be sticky but you will be able to remove it after, just like a sticky note. So your torn paper will stay put as you sponge over it and it will make your life much easier!!!
On my card, I used Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede for the sand and Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Lost Lagoon for the sky. The goose was stamped on a different piece of Whisper White card stock and cut around. I colored it using the Stampin’ Markers Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Basic Black. I used the White Signo gel pen to add some white on my little birds in the background.
